Exclusive to the Odyssey Touring and Elite trims, LED low- and high-beam headlights provide improved nighttime illumination and visibility compared to contemporary high-intensity discharge (HID) headlights. Six LEDs serve as low beams and three LEDs serve as high beams on each side. Besides improving driver confidence and passive safety, the LED headlights use less energy, helping to enhance fuel efficiency by reducing engine loads. In addition, the LED headlights last up to five times longer than HID headlights and up to 10 times longer than halogen headlights - contributing to less frequent replacement and the associated cost savings. An auto on/off function is also included.
Included on the Odyssey LX, EX, EX-L and EX-L N/R, projector-beam-style halogen headlights feature round outboard low beams and round inboard high-beam illumination. The Odyssey LX headlights have an auto-off feature to protect the battery state of charge if the driver leaves the vehicle without switching off the lights, while Odyssey EX and above trims add the convenience and safety of auto on/off high beams (AHB).
The strength of the "tailgate ring" (the circular metal structure surrounding the tailgate) is vitally important for superior vehicle handling, stability and ride quality. Debuting on the 2016 Honda Pilot and applied to the 2018 Odyssey for the first time, this advanced tailgate ring contributes to the new model gain in torsional rigidity, benefiting ride, handling and NVH. For the first time in the Odyssey, body stiffness is enhanced using structural foam inserts in key locations. These include the left and right C-pillar stiffeners, and within an inside bracket that connects the left and right side center frames under the front floor. The improved body stiffness pays dividends in handling precision, ride quality, NVH and crash safety.
Located under the front floor of the new Honda Odyssey is a variation of the "3-Bone" structure used in the Pilot that improves impact load management, directing energy around the passenger cabin in the event of a frontal collision. The structure creates three different load pathways, or "backbones," that channel collision energy. One channels collision forces from the front of the vehicle directly underneath the passenger cabin; the other two channel collision forces under the vehicle left and right side frames. The result is an improved capability to safely channel energy during a frontal crash.
